Mimeographed, 6pp. 2 The World Council at the Turn of the Turbulent 80s Erwin H. EPSTEIN This is a personal memoir of my presidency of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES). My term as President began at the 4th World Congress in Tokyo in July 1980 and ended in April 1983. The first two years of that period coincided, with only a few months’ variation, with my position as President-elect and President of the US-based Comparative and International Education Society (CIES).

Among the Americans, I included Gerald Read, whose knowledge of both the World Council and CIES was unmatched; Max Eckstein, CIES Vice-President and my immediate successor; Christopher Lucas, a senior colleague from the University of Missouri whom I felt could help me negotiate assistance from our university administration; and Noel McGinn, a respected scholar associated with both Harvard University and the prominent Javier Barros Sierra Foundation in Mexico. On the Mexican side, Luis Quintero was my co-organiser in charge of local planning.

Such a combined conference would virtually guarantee participation of CIES members, who had not attended previous World Congresses in significant numbers. For the first time, I felt, the largest comparative education society might be directly and substantially involved in a World Congress. At Quintero’s urging, I gave a proposal to UDEM’s rector, Iván Espinosa, who presented it to the university’s Board of Trustees. The proposal envisaged that: • • • the 5th World Congress would take place in Monterrey in July 1983 and last for about five days; the number of participants would be approximately 500-800; the CIES would have the major responsibility for the academic pro- 22 I: The World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES) • • • gramme; UDEM would have the major responsibility for on-location organisation; UDEM would guarantee adequate financial support; and in all other respects, UDEM would collaborate with the CIES.
